Using Bite sized or Micro eLearning courses on your LMS

Introducing Vado to Australia and New Zealand.  ELEARNINGFORCE ANZ have a new partnership with Vado Inc. to deliver world best practice in on-line bite size, or micro learning courses from your own LMS to your staff, wherever they are and on any device – Mobile, PC, tablet or Smart phone.  Vado is an off the shelf e-learning courseware provider specialising in employee soft skills and management development courses. From a current catalogue of over 350 courses Vado’s Learning Content is unique because:

1. Development happens on the job: Research shows that 70% of development happens on the job, and Vado is the only off the shelf e-learning courseware provider that helps the learner apply on the job through the step by step instructions. The combination of short videos followed by step by step instructions on how to apply on the job helps the learner put into practice the instruction they just completed.  Since development happens on the job and Vado’s courses come with step by step instructions, organisational leaders have confidence that the transition from learning to application on-the-job happens.

2. Short bite sized or micro learning content: Some call it granular, others call it chunked.  They mean the same thing – learners want short learning courses.  Study after study shows that taking in information in small micro sized chunks leads to increased learner retention.  The market has been recognising this trend toward shorter and shorter learning courses and have shortened e-learning courses from 4 hours to 1 hour to 30 minutes or less.  Our learning content takes this trend to the next step to meet the demands of learners.

3. Video: In their personal life, employees learn new information by watching videos and they have come to expect that on the job.  So, all of Vado’s courses start with a short instructional video.  And the videos are in high definition – HD for a better learner experience.

4. Optimised for the mobile learner: Mobile means two things:  technology and the learner experience. All of Vado’s courses are optimised for both meanings. From a technology standpoint, our content is viewable from all hand held devices. From a learner experience perspective, small bite sized videos fit the mobile learners’ requirement of not having to watch long videos on their hand held device.

The ELEARINGFORCE and Vado’s newly formed relationship presents a great opportunity to combine world-class eLearning SCORM based packaged video content, fully integrated into your LMS.  Any course from the current catalogue is available (350+ currently) and can be selected from a Management or Development series to match your corporate goals and training delivery plan, or ELEARNINGFORCE can provide a core selection of 30 or 50 courses to help you to get a rapid start on delivering high quality training for your staff immediately.  All courses featuring short or micro learning content enabled for anywhere any-time consumption.

 

When combined with LMS 365 for Office 365, LMS 365’s easy to use competency management feature provides simple delivery, tracking and competency management process.  This can now be a core part of your overall training solution.  Making best possible training resources available to your teams from within their Microsoft platform, utilising your current investment in O365 and all other familiar Microsoft integrated tools and technologies, training can be completed anywhere on any device.
